Eli had his first "ER possible" injury in a really long time this weekend. Turns out those are a lot more complicated with two kids. I stood there for a second unsure of who to pick up first. Sydney, who if left unattended had a high likelihood of sampling garden chemicals or Eli, who was screaming and bleeding? It turned into sort of a hot-lava game, picking up each one and moving them about 5 feet at a time. I would've carried both, but my kids are a lot bigger than they look. He's fine now, and we didn't go to the ER. The advice nurse I called several hours later said "It sounds like it'll be fine, as long as you don't mind that he's a little disfigured." It's just his toe, so we saved a trip. MOTY.

"Mama, can I just go lay over there and watch the people go by?" *swoon*
She was all about this rocking horse. She nearly rocked herself right over the front.
How cute is this?! Love my little reader.
This week my goal is to get back to the gym and get my eating habits under control. I started trying to minimize dairy, but it's not really having as big an impact as I'd like so I've got to try something new. Any suggestions? I think the biggest problem is that as soon as I limit something, I rebel against the limit, so I'm thinking about doing a "free day," as in six days of controlled eating with one day where I eat whatever I want. We'll see how it goes. I'd also like to finish our big family project, which is in a constant state of finishing right now. Pictures soon, I hope.
